Workshop

The Geological Survey of South Australia (GSSA) and CSIRO are hosting a one-day workshop to discuss sedimentary-hosted copper systems in South Australia with a focus on the Stuart Shelf.

Sedimentary-hosted copper deposits are the second most important source of copper in the world. The Neoproterozoic sedimentary succession of the Adelaide Rift Complex and Stuart Shelf has long been considered as having considerable potential for sedimentary-hosted copper resources, and has in recent times seen many exploration companies pursuing sediment-hosted copper mineralisation in South Australia.

In this workshop, we will review the state of current knowledge on sedimentary copper mineral systems and discuss new insights from recent investigations on the Stuart Shelf by GSSA, CSIRO, industry, researchers and Geoscience Australia.

Presentations will include:

• Review of sedimentary copper mineral systems in SA and global context

• Stratigraphy and lithofacies of the Stuart Shelf

• Basin analysis: providing a framework for discovery

• Potential source rocks in the Stuart Shelf

• Various presentations by companies on their current projects exploring the Stuart Shelf and adjacent areas.

A core display will accompany the workshop. This is a chance to examine an N-S transect across the main basin and basement units of the Stuart Shelf.
